Have you got an empty garage and a spare couple of million in the bank? Then pay attention to this list of supercars rolling out this year . . .
Aston Martin MA-RB 001 — US$3.9 million
Developed by the British luxury brand in partnership with Red Bull Racing, this street-legal supercar is designed to perform like a track car with the comfort of a road car. The run of 100-150 road cars and 25 track-only vehicles features a V12 engine, lightweight carbon frame, and an innovative suspension system to cope with the aerodynamics of this light, compact supercar.
Lykan HyperSport — US$3.4 million
The first supercar to ever be produced in the Middle East courtesy of UAE manufacturer W Motors and a collaboration of Lebanese, French and Italian engineers — and it wouldn’t be a product of Dubai without a bit of gratuitous bling. The Lykan boasts headlights made of titanium LED blades and encrusted with 220 diamonds . . . while there’s the less expensive model, the Fenyr, available for a measly $1.85m due to its smaller number of precious stones.
Pagani Huayra BC — US$2.8 million
Named after Pagani’s first customer and the owner of the largest Ferrari collection in the world, Benny Caiola, as well as the wind god of South America’s indigenous Quechua people, the Huayra BC features a 6.0L twin-turbo V12 engine, 750 horsepower under the hood, and is limited to a run of 20 units.
Bugatti Chiron — US$2.7 million
This curvaceous, alluring supercar is designed in Germany and manufactured in France, and includes an 8.0L quad-turbocharged W16 engine (like two V8s attached) and a whopping 1500 horsepower. The Chiron — named after 1950s Formula One legend Louis Chiron — hits 100km/h (60mph) in 2.5 seconds, and it’s top speed is electronically limited to 420km/h (260mph) for safety reasons.
Koenigsegg Regera — US$1.9 million
The Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LeFerrari, and McLaren P1 make up the ‘holy trinity’ of hybrid hypercars — but the Regera (which means ‘reign’ in Swedish) might just reign over them all, with a 250mph top speed that leaves the others’ threshold of 217mph in its wake. Only 80 units are planned of the Regera’s revolutionary design, which has swapped a traditional gearbox for technology combining petrol and electric powerplants managed by one gear.
